I'm looking for an excuse to take my 8h w/8" bell and custom slide out of the house. But this may not be the right time for that.
Bahhh you can use the 8H. You can play most of the rep fine but you'll encounter a piece every now and then where you'll either have to get good at faking it or use a horn with an f attachment.

I liken it to using a single valve bass. You're fine most of the time until you actually need the second valve and things start to get tricky for you!

Good!
Its Valhall Bruce, but still, maybe I didn't pray hard enough!  :D
They are probably doing something else than trombone playing  :D :D Good!

I thought it was Wotan and Fricka who lived in Valhall (at least according to Wagner).

Maybe they have Lur concerts?

You're rocking the Bach 42 slide on the Shires bell section right?

While this is coming from a bass trombone perspective... I was rocking a Edwards slide on my bass trombone Shires bell section for almost a year before I found the model of Shires slide I wanted for a good price.

I used the same leadpipe between slides, and while it maybe only made a 5% difference in my playing, when you're playing at a high level even 1-2% is pretty big for the player. Pretty much a lot of the quirks the horn had got ironed out and I finally had that legendary smooth Shires feel. I suspect the changes came due to the slides both having slightly different lengths, rounded vs sorta square crook and the Edwards slide was a little heavier.

For me having a Shires slide on a Shires horn made a significant difference in how the horn handled and in my opinion for the better.

Personally I'd get a slide first if you're looking at changing the blow of your horn.

I don't know any true conservative who supports white supremacy, KKK, Neo Nazism, fascism, marxism, socialism, statism, and communism.
 

Because you're wilfully blind I expect.

I'm curious about that pic.  Shipping them vertical like that was common? Were they somehow bolted to the fold-out panels?

I assume if we pray to god, we get straight to the high heaven register on our trombone.
Anyway, since I'm a viking and pray to Thor and Odin, it explains my poor high register....  :/ :D :) :)

Savio, I'm pretty certain Thor and Odin are the patron deities of the Trombone - at least for classical playing. I pray to Jack Teagarden and J J Johnson myself.

Nah, I mean several items in the manufacturing side of the Nova.  One of my favorites:
Those are Vegas, not Novas.

Just in case it's not clear from the pic, they actually loaded the Vegas into the shipping containers vertically.

The Vega DID have some serious issues, including the notorious unsleeved aluminum cylinder block and a propensity for rust.

Doesn't Odin reside in a high place (Asgard?)?  So then he can play high notes! :-P

Borrowed from the other derailed thread...

Or are you possibly referring to the Saturn, and not the pretty successful Nova? 

Nah, I mean several items in the manufacturing side of the Nova.  One of my favorites:


Neat idea, but just didn't work out.  They had a couple of other 'game changing' items within body assembly that were similar... complete disruptions of the conventional way of doing things, but did not solve the basic problems.

The basic problem was a lack of standardization and waste within the process.  Huge technological leaps to disrupt the market only work when the house is in order.  When it isn't, it is just different and incompatible with the rest of the market.

Cheers,
Andy

Depends on the players and equipment in the quintet, and sometimes even the venue. I've played Quintet on a King 3b, Yamaha 640, Bach 42T, and Kanstul 1588.  Currently the kanstul is my favorite because it is lighter in weight and easier to color than even the Yamaha.
